Barnsley have completed the signing of Southampton defender Jason McCarthy on a three-year-deal.

The 6ft 1’ defender can operate comfortably at both right-back and as a central defender is manager Paul Heckingbottom's second summer signing.

McCarthy previously played for Wycombe Wanderers and Walsall.

“This was a really easy decision. I went and met the manager and I got a really good impression from him straight away. I felt comfortable and this felt like the right move, I was really impressed as soon as I came through the door.”

“I am really, really pleased to get Jason to join us. It’s an exciting signing and I think the fans will be really pleased. I primarily see him playing on the right-hand-side but he can also play at the heart of the defence as well. This is a really positive move and I am looking forward to Jason getting onto the pitch.”
